My Monday Moments

Hey there friends!

Just wanted to check in and remind you all to be extra careful with the freezing rain around. I’m wearing a black turtleneck sweater to help chase the cold away. Stay warm!

Guess what, I rescheduled this afternoon’s dentist appointment for mid-February, so I won’t risk sliding off an icy road or slipping and falling on ice. I confess, at sixty-nine years old I fear falling and all the bad things that could happen if I take a tumble.

This morning, I had the best start of my day with my daily Bible reading. I love underlining the meaningful passages, and I’ve got a picture to prove it! It’s the above photo I posted. Yes, that’s me in the picture.

Today is all about cozy moments at home with my coffee bar. I’ve got the best kettle that lets me brew tea, coffee, hot chocolate, you name it. And I’m a total tea/coffee snob, as you can see from my coffee beans, grinders, and multi-size pour over coffee pots in the below photo. Yes, that’s my coffee bar.

Don’t feel sorry for me being stuck in the house today. Oh, no, please don’t. I’ll be spending my day writing from home and staying safe. And as fun as I find writing, I’ll also get to sit in the recliner and read for a few hours. Few things give me more pleasure than reading and enjoying a hot beverage.

Later, I’ll be joining the Writer’s Guild of Texas meeting via Zoom from 7 to 8:30 PM, so that’s something to look forward to! By the end of the meeting, I should know if Mother Nature encased North Texas in ice, as some are forecasting.

Take care and enjoy a cup of your favorite brew. Maybe even crack open your Bible and see what insights you can find.
